TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 4,114 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 590 people in intensive care units.

That’s up from 4,061 hospitalizations reported the previous day and a slightly lower number of people in ICU, down from 594.

The province also reports another 62 deaths related to COVID-19.

Ontario is reporting 7,165 new cases of COVID-19, though Public Health Ontario has said the number is likely higher because of a current policy restricting who can access tests.

More than half of the long-term care homes in the province have active COVID-19 outbreaks.

About 88 per cent of Ontarians aged five and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 83 per cent have received two.
